I had a brief look at the page, if is raster data at a size of 1 km
per pixel so it is not really suitable for OSM directly, however it
can be used for something like rendering the background for lower zoom
levels on something like the HOT rendering like we do with hillshading
now.  This would help to see where deserts/forests and things start
and end which is sometimes useful; the Thar Pakar drought activation
going on now could be one such case.
